A s kids return to school, debate is heating up once again over how they should spend their time after they leave the classroom for the day. The no-homework policy of a second-grade teacher in Texas went viral last week , earning praise from parents across the country who lament the heavy workload often assigned to young students. Brandy Young told parents she would not formally assign any homework this year, asking students instead to eat dinner with their families, play outside and go to bed early. But the question of how much work children should be doing outside of school remains controversial, and plenty of parents take issue with no-homework policies, worried their kids are losing a potential academic advantage. Second graders, for example, should do about 20 minutes of homework each night. High school seniors should complete about two hours of homework each night.

Why I Think All Schools Should Abolish Homework
Suffice it to say, I did not rejoice over Mr. As an elementary teacher of several years I battled the homework element annually using all sorts of evil behaviorist tricks to manage and assure that homework was assigned and collected as efficiently as possible. In the end though, I hated it. Why should I hate anything related to what I do in education?
Students, teachers, parents and even politicians have joined the bandwagon and issued their take on the issue and yet, it seems that no one has taken the initiative to conduct a public hearing that will explore all angles, weigh the pros and cons and then formulate ways so that those for and against and all stakeholders may meet halfway. Of all the pronouncements made, what caught the ire of many is the proposed House Bill filed by Quezon City Representative Alfred Vargas. Recently, I have watched lawmakers, students, faculty members and even psychiatrists being interviewed left and right regarding their stand on the controversial issue. During those days when I was a student, there were no cellphones or computers yet, so that we relied on books, physical research and frequented libraries. The way technology has made things a trillion times easier for students these days makes it difficult to understand why and how they could afford to complain about homeworks, if they involve research only.
